Imagine a close friend of you (A) has faced a loss recently and they are deeply sad. You arrange a gather-together and while you are chatting with your other friends suddenly you forget about your friend. A common friend of you and your close friend (B) comes to you (who has noticed that "A" is crying in his privacy) and whereas "B" knows that you are a closer friend to "A", asks you to go beside him and console him. I was wondering if you could let me know whether in AmE the self-made sentence below sounds natural or not. If not, then please let me know how a native speaker would say the same thing in a natural way:
- Go and sit beside him and console him a little.
